DWC 2008 results

Postby shawarma » 25 Jan 2009, 02:17

Curlin won the Dubai World Cup 2008 (DWC) with a winning time of 2:00:15 but there was apparently a possible timing discrepancy and that time was under Emirates Racing Authority (ERA) investigation (I don't remember now where I got that information). The ERA website as of today shows a time of 2:00:15 for the 2008 DWC so presumably the timing issue was resolved and the time unchanged? I can't find any other information about it. If anyone does have more information, reply here :) ...
